Album: Band of Joy (2010)
  • This is the first single from Band of Joy, an album by the British rock singer Robert Plant and his band the Band of Joy. It was released on September 13, 2010 in the UK and September 14 in the USA.
  • The song is a version of a Los Lobos track from the band's 1990 album The Neighborhood. Plant told Mojo magazine: "Los Lobos play with such great cool, Hispanic poly-rhythms. I kept thinking this song is like a nursery rhyme but the compulsion of the rhythm seems like it could be a reflection of the way these people deal with their forefathers."
  • The song's writers David Hidalgo and Louie Perez appear in the music video filmed for Plant's updated version.
  • Band Of Joy is the name of a band Plant was once in during the 1960s with Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.
